Played at Leeds,

on Saturday, 01/04/1882,

over 12 boards, 2 games per board.

 

This was the return match to one where Leeds travelled to Hull in June 1881.  On that latter occasion Leeds won by 15½-13½.  The Chess Player’s Chronicle, 1882, p.175, quoted the results as given in the Glasgow Herald, as follows:

As ever with this style of reporting results, there seems no way of knowing whether 1-1 means a win a-piece, or two draws.

 

The lack of initials makes it difficult to identify all the players.  Player’s identities inferred by present writer, were possible, are as follows.
